If you’re looking for any after-tours action in Puerto Jiménez, I recommend you start off at either Juanita’s Mexican Bar & Grille, or Soda Carolina, both of which are popular with locals, guides, and tourists. For a much more local scene, stop in for an Imperial at La Taberna ((tel) 2735-9533).


If you’re staying in the Matapalo area farther out on the Osa and want to hang with some locals, head to Buena Esperanza (no phone). This place can actually get pretty lively on a Friday or Saturday night. It’s the only game in town, but they’ve got good game.
